Flood Restoration and Carpet Drying

Ensuring a Safe and
Healthy Environment

While your carpets may have been exposed to water, they often can be restored and may not necessitate replacement. However, this restoration process will require specialised treatment. 

Our approach to addressing flood damage begins with the extraction of water, using our high-powered truck-mounted machines. In some cases, it may be necessary to lift the carpets and remove the underlay for thorough cleaning and drying. Following this, we apply a specialised sanitising agent to eliminate mould and bacteria. At Classic Carpet Cleaning, we possess a substantial inventory of professional dehumidifiers and air drying equipment, which greatly expedites the drying process. Any items requiring off-site restoration can be professionally handled at our dedicated drying facilities. Additionally, we have qualified carpet layers available to expertly re-install your carpet, restoring it to its former condition.

The Impact of Floods on Carpets

Floodwaters can seep into homes and commercial spaces, soaking carpets and causing extensive damage. The consequences of failing to address this damage promptly can be severe. Wet carpets become breeding grounds for mould, mildew, and bacteria, which can lead to health issues for occupants. Additionally, prolonged moisture exposure can compromise the structural integrity of buildings, including subflooring and drywall.

The Role of Flood Restoration Services

Flood restoration services play a vital role in the recovery process after a flood. These professionals are equipped with the knowledge, experience, and specialised equipment needed to assess the extent of damage and take appropriate action. Here’s how flood restoration services typically operate:

Inspection and Assessment

Restoration experts start by conducting a thorough inspection to evaluate the extent of the damage. They assess the level of moisture saturation in carpets and the affected areas.

Water Extraction

The first step in flood restoration involves removing standing water from the affected space. Powerful pumps and extraction tools are used to eliminate excess water quickly.

Drying and Dehumidification

Industrial-strength fans and dehumidifiers are strategically placed to create optimal airflow and humidity levels. This accelerates the drying process and prevents mould growth.

Cleaning and Sanitisation

Flood restoration professionals clean and sanitise the affected areas to ensure they are free from contaminants and pathogens.

The Importance of Carpet Drying

Carpet drying is a crucial component of flood restoration. When carpets remain wet for extended periods, they pose significant health risks, as mould and mildew can proliferate rapidly. Here’s why thorough carpet drying is essential:

Health and Safety

Proper carpet drying prevents the growth of mould and mildew, which can cause respiratory issues, allergies, and other health problems.


Drying carpets promptly can salvage them, reducing the need for costly replacements. It also helps prevent structural damage to the building.

Odor Elimination:

Wet carpets can emit unpleasant odors. Thorough drying and cleaning eliminate these odors, creating a fresh and pleasant indoor environment.

Allergen Reduction

Drying carpets effectively reduces allergen levels, promoting a healthier and more comfortable living or working space
